The Intermountain Rural Electric Association (Intermountain REA) began to experience an increasing number of failures with cable laid in the in 1970s and ‘80s. By proactively rejuvenating entire neighborhoods before cables failed, the utility improved service levels to a 99.4 percent reliability rate and saved tens of millions of dollars.
600 Miles of Aging Cable Restored with Novinium Sustained Pressure Rejuvenation
As an alternative to ongoing cable replacement, London Hydro asked Novinium to conduct a pilot cable injection project in a large subdivision. Since then, Novinium has gone on to inject more than 174,465 meters of cable for London Hydro and cable failures have declined by 58 percent.
Homer Electric Association (HEA) oversees a large service area with miles of decades-old electric cable in multiple areas. To stem recurring outages, the utility tried out the Novinium cable injection process and now uses cable rejuvenation regularly.
